On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 18, 2020, the 1776 Commission released its report in preparation for the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. The commission was established by President Donald Trump to respond to the false narrative perpetuated by The New York Times’ 1619 Project.
According to the 1619 Project, America has a different birth date — the year when the first enslaved Africans came to America. It suggested racism is in the DNA of America, claiming that our country was birthed in discrimination and that the Revolutionary War was fought to preserve slavery.
Unfortunately, thousands of schools across our great nation adopted this deceitful curriculum that has been criticized by both sides of the political spectrum.
